About Rothwell

Rothwell is a market town in North Northamptonshire, England. It is close to three larger towns, situated 4 miles northwest of Kettering, 7 miles southeast of Market Harborough and 8 miles southwest of Corby. Rothwell’s nearest railway station is at Kettering on the Midland Main Line. The town has a rich history and possesses a large parish church, the longest in the county and complete with bone-crypt, and the Market House built by Thomas Tresham in 1578.

Rothwell was once one of the three largest towns in Northamptonshire, the other two being Northampton and Stamford (which is now in Lincolnshire). Rothwell is also on the pilgrimage route from the former Benedictine Abbey at Peterborough to Santiago de Compostela, a route still used today.
